It’s obvious that the group of people is experiencing great difficulties getting along with each other. The first thing I would do to take care of the situation is to establish a safe and common ground within my group. I feel like if the group cannot get along over simple differences, then you must work towards a solution from the beginning. First, I will communicate with everyone in the group so none of the group members experience any tension. I can do this by expressing positive attitudes and feelings when communicating with my peers. I would especially, “Avoid disagreement and disagreeableness.” (Rothwell, 77). Secondly, I will make sure that not only I, but my group members as well, appear friendly, open, and interested in order for everyone to appear approachable. These consist of my ground rules which Rothwell discusses in Chapter 3: Group Development. This all goes to help create a comfortable environment and avoid the primary tension, or initial uneasiness, that the group encounters first.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
